ABATE Motorbicycle Toy Run

PORTLAND, Ore. - This site usually concerns itself with chains cranked by humans not engines.

But when I heard the clatter of motorbikes roar though the land
I sprang from the house with my camera in hand.

I saw outlaws and lawyers on choppers and trikes
and watched as they filled two city buses with toys for the tykes.

Then, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a chopped up hog, with Mrs. Claus on the rear.

With a white bearded driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

And to know that it was done to help the children at Shriners
Made the noisy spectacle all the more finer.

Yes, thousands of Harleys was a sight that was great
And we can all tip our hat to the folks from A.B.A.T.E.
